zoladex is not a safe drug to have in the body when you are pregnant - it stays in the body up to 4 months after your last implant went in, so 2nd of july was your last one, plus 4 months takes you up to middle of november before you should be trying to get pregnant.
You should continue to practice safe sex using condoms or other barrier methods until all the drug is out of your body and then it is safe to try for a pregnancy.
If you do get pregnant while the drug is in the body it can mean a miscarriage or a high risk off a disabled baby and it is not worth risking that with something so valuable to you.
you will not be able to get pregnant unless you are ovulating, and ovulation might start quickly but may not start for months. We are all different in how quickly our bodies get back to working normally after zoladex.
The average wait for ovulation after stopping the drug is 5-6months.
That means half of women will start ovulating quicker than 5-6months, and nearly half will take longer, but for some their ovaries never wake up. Only a very small percentage will not find their ovaries waking up and ovulating again.
If you wait longer than a year for periods to return then speak to your GP about it and he or she can check your hormone levels to see if there is a problem.
Your Doctor is talking rubbish to say you must conceive before your first period. He may hope that you do, but you cannot control that and nor can he.
No one knows when they will be able to conceive. It is not something you and anyone can control.
It is pure luck whether natural conception takes place after you ovulate and if you don't fall pregnant that month then you have a period and have to try again the next month.
If you don't feel pain when you ovulate then you will not know when that happens until your first period arrives then you have a much better idea when the next ovulation will take place, counting from the first day of your period for about 14 days if you have a 28 day cycle. Then you are around the time of the next ovulation.
Yes every period carries a small risk that it will cause the spread of new endometriosis., but how else can you fall pregnant unless you are ovulating and having periods?
Each period causes a fresh new menstrual lining to grow in the uterus ready for a newly fertilised egg to attach itself to the lining and grow a placenta. If you do not get pregnant or your egg does not attach then the lining gets old and you must get rid of it by having a period in order for a new lining to grow for a possible pregnancy the next month.
The website that explains the risks is on

A clinical trial on GnRH drugs found traces remained up to 4 months - so to be on the safe side wait at least the 12 weeks as per the advice from the manufacturer of zoladex, and probably best to wait the extra month to be sure there is definitely no drug left in the body before you get pregnant.
Once it is safe to have unprotected sex again then it is pot luck as to when you may fall pregnant. A success in getting pregnant depends on so many things. Not just the health of the egg and sperm, also a clear pathway for them to travel and meet up - but also the chemicals in the uterus, the menstrual lining being ready to accept a fertilised egg and the drugs you might have in your body when you do get pregnant. There are so many steps that can go right or can go wrong so a lot of luck is involved in successfully getting pregnant in the first place and more luck needed to carry on with a healthy pregnancy to full term.
Make sure you are as healthy as you can be - allow time to get rid of all the chemicals from the zoladex implants, make sure you are topped up with folic acid, eating a healthy balanced diet and getting regular exercise and your partner needs to take care of his health too so he has happy healthy sperm.
You still have a few weeks to prepare for baby making, and hopefully you won't have too long to wait before your first period arrives and then you can start counting to the next ovulation after that.
The only ways to know when you ovulate for the first time after zoladex is either you are someone who always feels sharp pain when they ovulate, or you will have to monitor your body by one of several methods.
They are outlined on the following web page
As you have no idea when in the next few months that could possibly be, my advice is to wait for the 1st period and count from then onwards. But it is your choice which you want to do.
